EASTBOURNE Coastguard has today issued an urgent appeal to the public:

“We are blessed with a beautiful coastline but when visiting please be aware of the dangers and stay safe.

This is the most recent cliff fall just east of Belle tout lighthouse which took a huge chunk of pathway with it and as you can see another large cracked section remains so please do stay away from the edge both above and below on the beaches.

That selfie will look just as beautiful from a safe distance as it will dangerously close to the edge. Remember in a coastal emergency dail 999 and ask for the Coastguard!”
